Next Friday will see Grindhouse Dublin celebrate the anniversary of another fan favourite, and they pity the fool who won’t be there.*
The 80s taught us many valuable things. That knowing is half the battle. That, despite mass emigration and hardship, we were apparently living way beyond our means. And of course, that nobody puts Baby in a corner. Seriously, don’t even try. Patrick Swayze will be furious. And starting off August, you can see that for yourself as Happenings show Dirty Dancing for their latest Open Air Cinema.
Grindhouse Dublin is committed to serving up a selection of classic or rarely screened films. Taking place on the last Friday of the month every month at the Light House Cinema, Grindhouse Dublin has shown the likes of Carrie, Big Trouble in Little China and more classics this year alone. This month’s selection by Dublin’s long-running cultivators of cult hits is Rocky IV, a franchise favourite and monkey’s paw user in its wish for unity between the US and Russia. A monkey paw wearing a boxing glove.
